Experimenting With Photosynthesis

Photosynthesis ensures that plants can use sunlight to grow. Most plants appear to do this very inefficiently. Scientists are experimenting with test plants, which grow faster with increased photosynthesis than the unchanged plants. They are even growing purple and yellow chloroplasts, which can also absorb energy from infrared light. Then the plant can continue to grow day and night.
